Updating antivirus databases manually
This article applies only to the 12-series of the F-Secure corporate products, and it explains how you can manually update the antivirus databases of F-Secure products on Windows platforms.
Note: This article assumes deep technical understanding of both F-Secure products and the relevant operating system. If you are unsure, contact F-Secure support for assistance.
